When I installed my H50 I was a little worried about how tight to screw the screws, pump to bracket, so I did so there was little effort to unscrew them. Temps were high when idle around 40c.
I had reason to go inside my PC yesterday so double checked the screws, they had come lose so I gave them a pretty stern tightening, I checked the temps after boot and they were down to 33c as Windows loaded. Today though after running for abit I'm back at my normal temps so I had another go on the screws using all the strength in my wrist, they are solid now but I still have the usual temps.
I'm wondering if I should go back in again and be a bit merciless and do them as tight as possible, but I'm worried about damaging or breaking the product.
What do Corsair recommend?
My CPU is an I7 930 @ 2.8GHz (unclocked)
